Desert-based Livelihood

Oct 4, 2022

Earlier, women in Lunkaransar block in the desert region of Bikaner had to travel 4-6 km every day in search of drinking water. To address this critical issue, two Tankas of 30,000  litres capacity each , were constructed under the ITC Mission Sunehra Kal Project. With this benefit, the families are consuming the water which to them tastes like nectar as well as for theirbanimals . This water conservation structure while reducing the hardships of women is also ensuring protective irrigation to their wadi plantations and enabling them to devote some time to wadi development. Desert development has shown the families the road to development.
